Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

This long track from our Flower of Berezin CD features Dave Kidron on fiddle and voice. Plenty of clawhammer banjo coming in after a verse or so. The lyrics to Papirosn are by Hyman Yablokoff. They refer to the hard life of an orphan on the streets of an Eastern European city in the early 20th century. The track is from our "Flower of Berezin" CD.

Love your style, Andy.  Everytime I hear your banjo, I think, "that's Andy Rubin. "  I love it when banjoists play from the heart and you certainly do that!

Best wishes always,

Mary Z

I found it searching for tunes with "Anne" in the title and boy am I delighted! I love this rendition of Papirosa and the great playing!
